Formed while field researching sound in 2008, Melbourne psych ambient four-piece Yolke released their debut album ‘Poppy Wash’ back in 2010, and it quickly drew references to shoe gaze, krautrock and folktronica, with some of the reviews citing the pop quirks of Caribou and Ariel Pink as influences.
In January 2012, Yolke embarked on an east-coast tour of Australia along with their ‘Fallopian Tunes’ label-mates Trjaeu, Wild Dog Creek, Document Swell and Red Hymns, which also saw them all and taking in an appearance at the inaugural Wormwoodstock Festival in NSW. The live-to-sir set – originally broadcast on FBi Radio on 26th January 2012 – includes three extended tracks from Yolke, including new and unreleased material – as well as a track from the ‘Poppy Wash’ album and from their road trip buddy, Document Swell.
